Want to slice your own bacon extra-thick, extra-thin or in-between? With Nueske's Slab Bacon, you can slice your bacon to meet your (and your family's) exact preference.
This is the same premium-quality bacon as our popular sliced varieties... made from the leanest pork available, and slowly smoked over Wisconsin Applewood embers for a full 24 hours. Another sign of superior quality: It shrinks a fraction as much as typical supermarket bacon. Conveniently portioned in two or four 1 1/2 lb. slabs.
To Store: Refrigerate immediately. Vacuum-packaged bacon will keep for 12 weeks in refrigerator, or up to 1 year in freezer. Once opened, use within 1 week.
To Fry: For best results, place bacon in unheated skillet. Cook over MEDIUM LOW heat. Turn frequently until desired crispness is attained. (You'll notice less shrinkage than with other brands.)
Microwave: On microwave-safe plate, place bacon slices side by side between layers of paper toweling. Cook on HIGH for the following approximate times:
2 slices - 2 minute
4 slices - 4 minutes
6 slices - 6 minutes
Thin bacon slices require slightly less time.
Oven-Baked: Preheat oven to 350°F. Place slices close together on rimmed baking sheet (rim prevents grease from dripping on oven's heating elements). For easiest cleanup, place parchment paper on sheet prior to placing bacon (make sure paper doesn't hang over edges of baking sheet). Bake 20 minutes or until desired doneness; no need to turn bacon during cooking. Place bacon on paper toweling to drain.
